1. A series RLC circuit has R = 50 Ω, L = 0.01 H and C = 0.04 × 10^{-6} F. System voltage is 100 V. The frequency, at which the maximum voltage appears across the capacitor, is?

a) 5937.81 Hz

b) 7370 Hz

c) 7937.81 Hz

d) 981 Hz

View Answer

Explanation: Frequency f

_{c}at which V

_{C}is maximum f

_{c}= \(\frac{1}{2π}\Big[\frac{1}{0.01×0.01×10^{-6}} – \frac{50×50}{2×0.01×0.01}\Big]^{0.5}\)

So, f

_{c}= 7937.81 Hz.

2. A series RLC circuit has R = 50 Ω, L = 0.01 H and C = 0.04 × 10^{-6} F. System voltage is 100 V. At this frequency, the circuit impedance is?

a) 50 – j2.5 Ω

b) 50 – j2.8 Ω

c) 50 + j2.5 Ω

d) 50 + j2.8 Ω

View Answer

Explanation: Z = R + j (ωL + \(\frac{1}{ωC}\)) = 50 + j \(\left(2π × 7937.81 × 0.01 – \frac{1}{2π×7937.81×0.04×10^{-6}}\right)\) = 50 – j2.5 Ω.

3. Given, R = 10 Ω, L = 100 mH and C = 10 μF. The values of ω_{0}, ω_{1} and ω_{2} respectively are?

a) ω_{0} = 1000 rad/s, ω_{1} = 951.25 rad/s, ω_{2} = 1075.54 rad/s

b) ω_{0} = 1000 rad/s, ω_{1} = 975.25 rad/s, ω_{2} = 1051.25 rad/s

c) ω_{0} = 1000 rad/s, ω_{1} = 951.25 rad/s, ω_{2} = 1051.25 rad/s

d) ω_{0} = 1000 rad/s, ω_{1} = 825.30 rad/s, ω_{2} = 1075.54 rad/s

View Answer

Explanation: ω

_{0}= \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{100×10^{-3}×10×10^{-6}}}\) = 1000 rad/s

Now, ω

_{1}= \(\frac{-R + \sqrt{R^2 + \frac{4L}{C}}}{2L} = \frac{-10 + \frac{\sqrt{100 + 4 × 100 × 10^{-3}}}{10×10^{-6}}}{2×100×10^{-3}}\) = 951.25 rad/s

And, ω

_{2}= \(\frac{+R+ \sqrt{R^2+ 4L/C}}{2L}\) = 1051.25 rad/s.

4. Given, R = 10 Ω, L = 100 mH and C = 10 μF. Selectivity is?

a) 10

b) 1.2

c) 0.15

d) 0.1

View Answer

Explanation: Selectivity = \(\frac{1}{Q}\)

Q = \(\frac{ωL}{R} = \frac{1000×100×10^{-3}}{10}\)

∴ Q = 10

So, Selectivity = 0.1.

5. Two series resonant filters are shown below. Let the 3 dB bandwidth of filter 1 be B_{1} and that of filter 2 be B_{2}. The value of \(\frac{B_1}{B_2}\) is ____________

a) 0.25

b) 1

c) 0.5

d) 0.75

View Answer

Explanation: For series resonant circuit, 3dB bandwidth is \(\frac{R}{L}\)

B

_{1}= \(\frac{R}{L_1}\)

B

_{2}= \(\frac{R}{L_2} = \frac{4R}{L_1}\)

Hence, \(\frac{B_1}{B_2}\) = 0.25.

6. A 440 V, 50 HZ AC source supplies a series LCR circuit with a capacitor and a coil. If the coil has 100 mΩ resistance and 15 mH inductance, then at a resonance frequency of 50 Hz, the half power frequencies of the circuit are?

a) 50.53 Hz, 49.57 Hz

b) 52.12 HZ, 49.8 Hz

c) 55.02 Hz, 48.95 Hz

d) 50 HZ, 49 Hz

View Answer

Explanation: Bandwidth, BW = \(\frac{f_o}{Q} = \frac{50}{47.115}\) = 1.061 Hz

f

_{2}, higher half power frequency = f

_{0}+ \(\frac{BW}{2}\)

∴ f

_{2}= 50 + \(\frac{1.061}{2}\) =50.53 Hz

f

_{1}, lower half power frequency = f

_{0}– \(\frac{BW}{2}\)

∴ f

_{1}= 100 – \(\frac{1.59}{2}\) = 49.47 Hz.

7. At what frequency will the current lead the voltage by 30° in a series circuit with R = 10Ω and C = 25 μF?

a) 11.4 kHz

b) 4.5 kHz

c) 1.1 kHz

d) 24.74 kHz

View Answer

Explanation: From the impedance diagram, 10 – jX

_{C}= Z∠-30°

∴ – X

_{C}= 10 tan (-30°) = -5.77 Ω

∴ X

_{C}= 5.77 Ω

Then, X

_{C}= \(\frac{1}{2πfC}\) or, f = \(\frac{1}{2πX_C C}\) = 1103 HZ = 1.1 kHz.

8. A 440 V, 50 HZ AC source supplies a series LCR circuit with a capacitor and a coil. If the coil has 100 mΩ resistance and 15 mH inductance, then at a resonance frequency of 50 Hz, what is the value of the capacitor?

a) 676 μF

b) 575 μF

c) 591 μF

d) 610 μF

View Answer

Explanation: We know that f

_{o}= \(\frac{1}{2π\sqrt{LC}}\)

Or, 50 = \(\frac{1}{2π\sqrt{5×10^{-3}×C}}\)

Or, C = \(\frac{1}{4π^2×50^2×15×10^{-3}}\) ≈ 676 μF.

9. A 440 V, 50 HZ AC source supplies a series LCR circuit with a capacitor and a coil. If the coil has 100 mΩ resistance and 15 mH inductance, then at a resonance frequency of 50 Hz, the Q factor of the circuit is?

a) 82.63

b) 47.115

c) 27.38

d) 92.38

View Answer

Explanation: We know that, Q = \(\frac{ωL}{R}\)

Or, Q = \(\frac{2π×50×15×10^{-3}}{100×10^{-3}}\) = 47.115.

10. For the circuit given below, if the frequency of the source is 50 Hz, then a value of t_{o} which results in a transient free response is?

a) 0

b) 1.78 ms

c) 7.23 ms

d) 9.21 ms

View Answer

Explanation: For the ideal case, transient response will die out with time constant.

T = \(\frac{L}{R} = \frac{0.01}{5}\) = 0.002 s = 2 ms

Practically, T will be less than 2 ms.

11. In the circuit given below, the magnitudes of V_{L} and V_{C} are twice that of V_{K}. Calculate the inductance of the coil, given that f = 50.50 Hz.

a) 6.41 mH

b) 5.30 mH

c) 3.18 mH

d) 2.31 mH

View Answer

Explanation: V

_{L}= V

_{C}= 2 VR

∴ Q = \(\frac{V_L}{V_R}\) = 2

But we know, Q = \(\frac{ωL}{R} = \frac{1}{ωCR}\)

∴ 2 = \(\frac{2πf × L}{5}\)

Or, L = 3.18 mH.

12. A circuit with a resistor, inductor and capacitor in series is resonant with frequency f Hz. If all the component values are now doubled, then the new resonant frequency will be?

a) 2 f

b) f

c) \(\frac{f}{4}\)

d) \(\frac{f}{2}\)

View Answer

Explanation: Resonance frequency = \(\frac{1}{2π\sqrt{LC}} = \frac{1}{2π2\sqrt{LC}}\)

Hence, \(\frac{f}{f_o} = \frac{\frac{1}{2π\sqrt{LC}}}{\frac{1}{2π2\sqrt{LC}}}\) = 2

∴ f = 2f

_{o}.

13. A series RLC circuit has a resonance frequency of 1 kHz and a quality factor Q = 50. If R and L are doubled and C is kept same, the new Q of the circuit is?

a) 25.52

b) 35.35

c) 45.45

d) 20.02

View Answer

Explanation: Quality factor Q of the series RLC circuit is given by, Q = \(\frac{1}{R} \sqrt{\frac{L}{C}}\)

Q

_{new}= \(\frac{1}{2R} \sqrt{\frac{2L}{C}} = \frac{1}{2} × \frac{1}{R} \sqrt{\frac{2L}{C}} = \frac{1}{2} × \sqrt{2} × Q\) = 35.35.

14. In a series RLC circuit R = 10 kΩ, L = 0.5 H and C = \(\frac{1}{250}\) μF. Calculate the frequency when the circuit is in a state of resonance.

a) 4.089 × 10^{4} Hz

b) \(\frac{11111.1}{π}\)Hz

c) 4.089π × 10^{4} Hz

d) \(\frac{1}{π}\) × 10^{4} Hz

View Answer

Explanation: Resonance frequency = \(\frac{1}{2π\sqrt{LC}}\)

= \(\frac{1}{2π\sqrt{\frac{1}{250} × 10^{-6} × 0.5}} = \frac{11111.1}{π}\)Hz.

15. In a series RLC circuit for lower frequency and for higher frequency, power factors are respectively ______________

a) Leading, Lagging

b) Lagging, Leading

c) Independent of Frequency

d) Same in both cases

View Answer

Explanation: A Leading power factor means that the current in the circuit leads the applied voltage. This condition occurs in capacitive circuits. On the other hand, a lagging power factor indicates that current lags the voltage and this condition happens in an inductive circuit.
